AUBURN, Ala. — Ole Miss’ running game, and the results the coaches have not only wanted but expected to see most of the season, came alive in the first half of Saturday’s game against Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Led by a healthy Brandon Bolden and Jeff Scott, the Rebels totaled 172 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in the first half, a season-high for a half in the rushing department. Ole Miss’ ability to move the ball on the ground helped slow Auburn’s offense, which had gotten off to a 14-0 start, and ultimately propelled the Rebels to a 17-17 tie at the half.

BATESVILLE — It’s not often that a high school program as dominant as South Panola has been the last 18 years has a first of any kind to publicize.
